Yeah, right. That wont have a huge effect on him getting drafted.
There are other options at LB that are just as good for NFL teams, and they know it.
Ogletree isnt some superstar that come along once in a lifetime.
How is he undersized? Dude is 6'2 242. That is fine for any lb position.

He can play any Lb position, but he was totally protected at Georgia with those 3 DL in front of him. So was Jarvis and he struggled more with blocks than Ogletree.

Yep. Everything I've read on Bengals boards (doing my draft homework, team needs, etc.) shows that Rey is gone, Burfict could be moved to middle, but it is higly unlikely. Some fans want it, some don't. I think he should just stay at WLB and they should take their chances on a MIKE or a versatile WILL that has the capability to man down MIKE in the NFL.

Bengals could definitely land Ogletree and have shown they aren't shy about taking people with character concerns. That isn't to say I am going to take him in the draft, (but I probably am -- smokescreen/oh la la) but he can definitely play a variety of positions and be diverse for that team. If the Bengals don't take him in the first, I am not sure what team after that would hop on him. There are definitely teams like HOU, DEN, BAL who need a LB -- just not sure if their FO's are willing to take that gamble.

Moore just pulled up lame in the 40. This has been a bad weekend for him.

Dion Jordan and Ziggy Ansah tore it up. Floyd had a fantastic time and I think Hankins ran solid for his size. *giggle*

Oh! I had him at 6'3" 233!! No wait! Now hes 6'2" 242. Hillarious!
Hes a SS that is constantly trying to manipulate his weight to play
LB. I swear, this guy has more height/weight variations than a Jenny Craig commercial!!!
And the hype is laughable. Plus hes a complete idiot.
The most over-hyped defensive player of this draft.
Te'o of course being the most over-dramatic player of this draft.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nfl...g-quarterback/

Some other decent stuff in the article besides the combine nuggets I'm posting from the article.

Five combine takeaways, inside and outside Lucas Oil Stadium.

1. Repeat after me: Two months to go before real decisions happen. It may be a big deal that top-10 pick Star Lotulelei, the defensive tackle from Utah, has a heart defect that needs further testing, as reported by ESPN, but we won't know for sure until further tests happen. Same with the spinal stenosis for Georgia's Jarvis Jones and the rehabbing shoulder of USC quarterback Matt Barkley. Patience. Patience. When you hear that players are "sliding down draft boards,'' or "rocketing up draft boards,'' understand that it's a lie. Those draft boards now are mental. Most teams have their first version of player ranking set before coming to the combine. Then they return home and continue the scouting process, then reset the board in the week or sometimes day or two before the draft. If they're sliding or rising now, it's in the minds of GMs, not in any official sense.

2. Alex Smith to Kansas City? Jason LaCanfora reported Sunday night that a trade of Smith from the 49ers was "effectively complete,'' but the destination is unknown. It's not Jacksonville. It's likely Kansas City, and if it's for a third-round pick or less, it's a great move for the Chiefs. Smith would be the smart and accurate field general Andy Reid wants out of the position.

3. The Ravens and Joe Flacco are making progress. The club negotiator, Pat Moriarty, and agent Joe Linta spent four hours together Friday night, then were spotted at the Capital Grille having dinner. This isn't degenerating into what happened last summer -- yet, and I don't think it will -- when Linta and Flacco walked away with a deal agonizingly close. The Ravens know they can find a way to do a cap-friendly deal in years one and two, Flacco knows he doesn't want to leave Baltimore, and the extended conversation is a good sign that the two sides can reach a five- or six-year deal to keep the unsigned Flacco in Baltimore through the middle of his prime years before free agency opens in two weeks.

4. Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o made a very good first impression on the NFL. No way the second- or third-rated inside linebacker gets to the bottom of the round now, in the wake of the fake girlfriend story. I can't see him lasting past Cincinnati at 21. "Unbelievable kid,'' is how one interviewer for a team described him Sunday night. "Everybody in our room fell in love with him." More about him in a few moments.

5. Making sense of the speed. "We were talking about that tonight,'' said one club scout. "The times just seem to be faster than we expected, by a lot of guys." There were six sub-4.4-second 40-yard dashes by wide receivers -- including 4.27 by Texas' Marquise Goodwin and 4.34 by Texas A&M's Ryan Swope, both faster than predicted -- and a ridiculous 4.65-second run by 306-pound offensive line prospect Terron Armstead of Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Maybe it's just a fluky year. But if the defensive backs run faster than normal Tuesday in the final day of combine work, I think teams will pay more attention than usual to retests on some of the sprinters' Pro Days in March.

Hunt ran a 4.6 as well. If he wasn't so old and raw at the sametime I would think the sky is the limit with him.

That is quite impressive and he did a lot of reps for having such a large wingspan. Unfortunately, the more I read about him and see what footage is online, he is an athlete, not a football player. Developmental guy at best according to most places. I read a report the other day where someone said they would be smart to make him a tight end. Made me L-O-L.

I just wanna start the mock draft. I'm almost tempted to trade my 3, 4 and 5 to the Chargers to get #11. JCMElway, are you serious on dat!?

Hearing that Broncos brass came away impressed with Manti Te'o last night. They had a long talk. Good talk.

Well you get a beast on SP teams right off the bat with him. The guy blocks kicks like Mt. Mutombo blocks shots.

Floyd keeps putting on a clinic. Testing out better athletically than Richardson, which is surprising to me. Definitely a Top 10 guy now, if not Top 5 -- even though some scouts and personnel have been saying that for a week.

Bingo's 10 yard split is better than most of the RB's in this class, absolutely insane. He, Jordan and Ansah made a bunch of $ today.

Brandon Williams, Conklin's dude -- has been VERY impressive as well.

So excited about the DL.

Must have been the team that fell in love with him from SSJ article. Now Manti has about 15 boyfriends if our whole player personnel and scouting departments got woo'd by him.

Looks like almost every Alabama player is too cool to workout at Indy and will hold their parade at their pro-day. Losers.

I really want him to be a Bronco, but he is probably going to run well so that won't happen.
